Mahie Gill, who became a popular name after her 2008 film Dev D, recently revealed that she is mother of a three-year-old daughter. Mahie, who has mostly remained tight-lipped about her personal life, talked about her daughter for the first time.
In an interview with Navbharat Times, Mahie Gill revealed that this August, her daughter will turn three. "I am very proud that I am the mother of a daughter. Yes, I have not been married yet, when I want to marry, I will do it. In August this year, my child will be three years old," said the actress.
Over the years, Mahie Gill has managed to keep her daughter away from media scrutiny and the paparazzi. Mahie also kept her daughter away from her social media pages.
Mahie said that her aunt takes care of her daughter in Mumbai and she too lives in the city most of the time.
Speaking about why she named her daughter Veronica whom she had kept away from social media platforms and public scrunity, Mahie said, "Her name is Veronica. She lives with me.
Why I named her Veronica - When Jesus was dragged on the cross and he was being taken to Jerusalem to be crucified. A woman dared to wipe his face with her handkerchief and his image got printed on it. That woman was called Veronica. And the meaning is- She who brings victory to true image. Thus I liked the name. And named my daughter Veronica."
Meanwhile, when Mahie Gill was asked about her plans of getting married, the 43-year-old actress said: "What is the need for marriage? It all depends on the thinking and time. Families and children can be made without marriage.
There should be no problem with having children without marriage. I do not think there is a problem... Marriage is a beautiful thing, but doing or not is a personal choice."
